The Thames river cruise is one of the nicest things to do in London especially if you don't have a great deal of time to explore London by foot. We have taken the cruise from the London Eye to the Tower Bridge pier and other occasions to Greenwich. all worth investigating Along the way you see lots sites like 30 St Mary’s Axe (informally known as The Gerkin) and Shakespeare’s Globe theatre. If you take a longer cruise to Greenwich you will see Cutty Sark, Houses of Parliament, and the London eye.
If you have not done the trip before or like me were entertaining foreign students, take a tourist boat for the commentary. Otherwise, take the cheaper Thames Clipper service and enjoy speeding along. An oyster card or other travel ticket holder (e,g. One day travel card) will get you a discount on the trip as the boats are part of the bus, tube network. The best places to stop is Greenwich, for loads of attractions and a great place to stroll. The Southbank, where there is often something free going on. The Tower of London if you want to go here I recommend you book your entrance on line and go in the morning.
There is an informal guide on the boats, who depending how they feel can be full of useful information. The boat can often be full during peak periods, so it was not possible to move around. You can though if you sit at the front of you will be able take lots of photos. The river trips suit all ages and nationalities, all have food and toilets on board. Always been met by polite, helpful and friendly staff.
